I just got a new macbook pro (referbished mid-2015).
When my old macbook broke I was sad but now that all is said and done I'm happy. It's an opportunity to re configure everything with a more logical mind set.
Last time I configured things with my fingers crossed. I remember creating public and private keys for git, then when I needed to access them I would not be able to find it, I installed node following tutorials then when I tried to install PHP and its composer and the like, I'd not be able to find things that the tutorial said I could.
The above is anecdotal, in reality I can't remember the struggles. The point is I would love to learn how these configurations work, so that, you know, the bash setup and stuff will not be magic for me!
So, apart from having a markdown file open to write everything down, is there anything you can help me with? For example what's the best terminal app, anything about bash.
Or even better, has anyone documented their setup in tutorial form which I can follow
My point is, I could instal node npm and the global packages I'll need, but I'll most likely be lost when trying to install php and due to my blindly-following-tutorials approach, I'll still avoid using the terminal/bash at it's full capacity.
